bit. the president himself will be out in montana today. he wants to try to put a face on these town hall meetings, that are different from what we've seen so far. the white house recognizes it's got a problem. it's got approval ratings on health care back where bill clinton was in 1993. that's an ominous sign. the debate is, overtaken by thing that are not part of the bill. the debate about death panel. even the debate about public option is so far down the line on what's actually possible at the end of this thing. it's not where the white house wants to be. they have to move into a position where the president can say exactly what he's for, what he's against and try to mobilize the support for this thing because of real fears out there. i mean, it's not just crazy people at town hall meetings who are making claims that are beyond the pail, it's real concern. people showing up at town hall meetings are really worried about what happens to their benefi benefits? what happens to medicare? some real issues out there. >> this is ivanka speaking. the problem for me, not, in the health ca

. >> my colleague from montana brought up the testimony from mr. ludwig, i want to go into another area of his testimony that i found very interesting. he makes the point, and i'm sure he could make it much better than i, which he may get a chance to do later, but he would suggest avoiding a two-tier system that allows the largest too big to fail institutions over smaller institutions. he makes the point that perhaps it would be also two-tier regulators, the best light it is in one system and others in another. the--- to regulators in once -- the best regulators in one system and the others in another. and not treating a bias and the system that would be in favor of those institutions to develop over those that were not too big to fail. >> there are a couple of questions, one being weather should be tier one entities designated as to begin fail, regardless of the occ and oversight. and weather as part of regulatory consolidation that you have a regulator based on size. we have concerns about designating institutions formally as tier one. i think you could probably say he was not, based
at it if we want to reach across the country, that's why the president was in montana yesterday in a community not considered typically democrat. he's reaching everywhere to engage the american people because there's not person in this country that isn't touched by healthcare or who right now is not adversely effected by the current healthcare system and it's growing worse every day. that's really the effort to reach out that we're talking about. [applause] >> okay. this question, kind of touches on the seriousness of the debates happening. there's a feeling there's a substance and a lot of noise taking up air time. from jack and jill politics. do you believe the birthers are a, crazy b, racist or,c both. those are your options. [laughs] >> interesting options. i mean come on you guys. this is ridiculous. of course he was born in the united states. unless they don't want to think of hawaii as the united states and maybe some people don't view that. but i think that, i mean the good thing about our country is everybody crazy or not is allowed to have a voice. that's what we do and i wasn't ca
